The owner of the trailer often used by Liz Taylor and Richard Burton during the making of Cleopatra is making some startling claims against Lindsay Lohan. According to Angel Alger, the starlet trashed the trailer while filming her Lifetime film, Liz and Dick.
Alger bought the trailer because it was reportedly the famed couple's first love nest. Only after it was her possession was she told she'd have to deliver it to Silver Screen Pictures. That's because of a previous agreement that it could be used for Lindsay's film.
Alger claims she delivered the goods as demanded but when the trailer came back to her, it was completely trashed. She claims mirrors and dishes got broken and cigarette burns covered the furniture. Worse still, a valuable piece of furniture was missing altogether. It was an antique rocker that Liz adored and used constantly.
Alger says she is both shocked and disappointed by the happenings. Silver Screens supposedly promised her new acquisition would be returned in better condition than when she gave it to them. Instead, it came back with an estimated $100,000 in damage. That's twice what she originally paid for the trailer. Now she's pointing the finger at Lindsay Lohan, saying she believes the actress is to blame for the damage.
Angel told CNN the following. "Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it (the trailer) in this vandalized condition." She is right, of course, but why blame Lindsay?
Steve Honig, LiLo's representative says the claims are unjust and that Alger should talk to the movie's producers. Whether or not that took place remains unknown.
It's an easy jump to assume that Lindsay is responsible for the trailer's damage because of proximity. However, there's obviously no proof that she alone is guilty. The trailer was on set with dozens of other people. Anyone one of them have accessed it and caused the damage. Someone could have done it just to cause more heartache for the young actress.
What do you think? Did Lindsay trash the trailer or did someone else? Who should pay for the damages if they are, indeed, authentic?
